My Weekend Lookbook: August 28 - 30, 2015

Good Morning and Happy Monday to you!

Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend...

Photo 1. A New Game

On Saturday, the boyfriend and myself really didn't want to go out but we didn't have anything that seemed fun to do at home.  Thus, we took a trip to Barnes & Noble to look at their games.  That is when we found Quoridor. The rules and game play are quite simple; The object of the game is to reach the other side first, but you and your opponent can both put up walls to block off different paths.  Total games score was Kathy at 7 and the boyfriend at 2 (and yes, I am the maroon one who won this game as well).

My brother and his wife came over this weekend and we made curry for them.  It wasn't any regular sort of curry though.  It was according to Pieminister's cookbook recipe for The Guru.  In the directions it tells you to get enough ingredients that it'll make 2/3 served as curry the night before and 1/3 portion to be used as filling in a pie .  Last week I wanted to make mini pies for lunches, but was unsuccessful in getting any part of that accomplished.  This week I am happy to say that I have a wonderful pies to eat for lunch!

I have a new mixer!  I was in the middle of making these yummy chocolate chip cookies when my mixer decided to sputter off out of existence.  It stopped spinning the right whisk and then both of them... needless to say, I got very very fed up with it.  This ended up with me going to Target to sort out my baking life.  It didn't take very long to decide since the Kitchen Aid hand mixers were $8 off and it was a mint blue color!  It works a heck of a lot better and is a lot quieter too.

I hope your weekend was equally as wonderful, but for now I am off to get this week started!
